my son was on the computer and I IM'd him and asked him to check the cam....told him I thought it was smoke. He was down the road and on the camera within two minutes. Seriously...he didn't waste time and came carrying a fire extinguisher! Glad he was thinking, I heard and saw him enter on the cam and within several seconds saw a lot of smoke/or fire extinguisher. He was calling next and telling me the light that was not within view of camera was laying flat on the hay and was black. I do NOT use Heat Lamp bulbs...just 60 watt and I was shocked it made that much heat. It wasn't knocked down in the morning when I did chores and by early afternoon it did that much damage. That is just frightening how fast it can smolder something and start a fire.
When I got home after work, I checked the spot and saw son had cleaned it up pretty well and them dumped snow on the area. I dug around in all the bedding and Still found warm spots.
I hope it taught me a lesson that I need to always slow down and MAKE SURE...I take extra precautions with lamps.
I have yet to get any pictures and hopefully this weekend I will get caught up and try to do a decent post on my blog. With new calves...new baby goats and this never ending Winter Weather, I am getting little else done and find myself not getting to even eat supper and relax until close to 9 in the evening. We have had too much rain and NO sunshine. I haven't seen the sun in close to two weeks. If it isn't fog it is serious ice/slush on the roads. WE NEED WARM WEATHER and a sunny day to get us out of the dumps.
p.s. Thank you Son for the cam ...it truly saved the day!!!
